If you want to experience the advanced Spooky2 rife system more effectively, a PC or a laptop is necessary. This article will show you in detail on how to choose a suitable computer to run Spooky2 software.
What Computer Should You Choose?
The hardware requirement to run Spooky2 is very minimal. Any machine that can run the operating system can run Spooky2.
Of course, the more powerful the machine, the faster it can process the growing database when performing searches. Otherwise, the main limiting aspect to performance is the quality of the USB bus that the machine is built with.
Another consideration is the actual screen size/resolution. The bigger the screen, and the denser the resolution, the easier it will be to work with the software.
The only other thing you will need to consider is how many USB ports are on the machine. You will require a minimum of 2 for use with Spooky2.
One USB port will be used to drive a powered USB hub which will allow you to run as many generators as the hub has ports. Note you can daisy chain hubs 7 layers deep, and hubs come in many sizes ranging from simple 2 port hubs to monster 28 port hubs.
If you do not use a hub, you can only run one generator per USB port on the computer.
The second USB port is used to run the Spooky Pulse for biofeedback scans. This device should not be run through a USB hub and thus will require a dedicated USB port.
Other than that, that is all you will need.
If you have 4 generators and the Spooky2 central, a computer with at least 2 USB ports and a powered USB hub that has 4 ports will do you well.
Which System Do You Need?
The Spooky2 software requirement is a Windows System.
Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 10 can be used for Spooky2.
The main advantage of using Win 7 over Win 10 is that you can keep control of Win 7 much easier. However, both will run Spooky2 just fine.
The main drawback to Win 10 is that it will perform updates if allowed on the internet at least once a month, which will result in an interruption to your running programs. While with Win 7, you could postpone updates until you wish to run them. Win 10 does not give you the option to postpone unless you have a Pro level copy. The standard home edition will force the updates with very little control when it happens.

Can You Use Mac?
In theory, yes, you can by using BootCamp to create a Windows partition or purchasing virtualization software.
In practice, however, we’ve found that the more layers of abstraction you add to any system, the more likely it is that problems will arise. And unless you’re a seasoned Mac and Windows troubleshooter, you may find that tracking causes and finding solutions is more trouble than it’s worth.
We recommend that you buy a cheap Windows notebook or used desktop model, and dedicate it to running your Spooky2 system.
However, if you wish to try the Mac route, please download the document “Spooky2 in Linux or Mac” from here: http://www.spooky2.com/downloadsPage/index.html
